Text SETTINGS to 2020. If that fails, try setting it up manually:

Look here for phone guides about how to set up your internet:

Sounds like you need to try manually setting up (or at least recheck) the connection settings on your phone.
_____________________________________________

For ANDROID handsets, go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile networks > Access Point Names

For BLACKBERRY, go to Options, then either Advanced Options > TCP or Device > Advanced System Settings > TCP/IP

For iPHONES, go to Settings > General > Network > Mobile Data Network (or Cellular Data Network)

For WINDOWS PHONE 7, go to Settings > Mobile Network > Add APN
_____________________________________________

The generic settings (i.e. at least some of these elements are applicable to all mobile devices) are as follows:

INTERNET

Connection Name: giffgaff
Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Server Address: 193.113.200.195
Port: 8080
Login Username: giffgaff
Login Password: password
Authentication Type: PAP

MMS

Connection Name: giffgaff
Access Point Name: giffgaff.com
Username: giffgaff
Password: password
Server: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMSC: http://mmsc.mediamessaging.co.uk:8002
MMS proxy: 193.113.200.195
MMS port: 8080
MCC: 234
MNC: 10
APN type: mms

It's usually a good idea to reboot your handset after entering or amending any of these settings.
